     Yaana, in the heart of the thick woods of Western Ghats, is a pilgrim center as well as a tourist destination placed amongst the evergreen picturesque forest of the Sahyadri Mountains.
 
     It is situated at around 40 km from sirsi and 20 km from Kumta in uttara kannada (North canara) district.
  
    There is a proverb in kannada which goes like this "Sokkiddare yaana, rokkiddare Gokarna" meaning you need to have bravery to visit yaana and money to visit gokarna.

The Bhairaveshwara temple here is very famous and devotees come here by walking miles together on Shivaratri.
 
   The huge rocks make the place famous and an attractive tourist spot.You can climb the rocks and it will be thrilling enough and the view is breathtaking. There are many honeybees around. Dont dare to disturb them at any case.
 
   There is few kms mud road at the end which is horrible. If you have jeep you can go. We had taken the bike which got punctured there. Luckyly the bhatru helped us out.
   
  
   You have one rupee coin box at the temple.but no network.
 
   Avoid to plan here on rainy seasons. There will be leaches even after the rainy season. The ideal time to visit would be summer and winter.
 
  One shop is there at the spot where you can get juices and small snacks and all. Staying there is highly not recommended.
  
   Gokarna is a place not to be missed nearby.
